Going! Going! Gone! Second Story Auctions exceeded the one million dollar sales mark in early August 2016. The e-commerce website has been featuring weekly auction sales for household items since October 2014.
The Second Story Auction bidder base has quadrupled in size since opening its doors for business. Bidders are both local and from out of state with many collectors following the weekly auction sales. All bidders are notified via e-mail of weekly auctions after signing up for notifications.
Who consigns with Second Story Auctions? Some consignors are selling their homes. They are either preparing their homes to be “market ready” for sale or have already sold their houses and need to quickly rid their homes of unwanted items.
Other consignors are not moving at all and are simply clearing out their homes. The online auction website has also hosted fundraisers as well as entire estates as consignors.
The bottom line – Second Story Auctions is the easy and profitable answer to shed one’s home of no-longer-needed items.
How does it work? A personal auction assistant is available to help consignors figure out what items to sell and which to donate. Auctions can be held “on site” for whole-house sales or items can be brought to the company’s Blue Ash warehouse.
Here is what a few people who have consigned items with Second Story Auctions have to say:
